"The ubtan was my mum’s way of moisturising, exfoliating my skin when I was 16,” says Priyanka.
All the ingredients Priyanka Chorpa puts in her homemade body scrubs- gram flour, lemon, curd, turmeric and sandalwood. If the paste is too thick, she adds milk as well.
Ubtan Body Scrub: Add a cup of gram flour to a bowl and mix with a few drops of lemon juice and enough Greek yogurt to create a smooth paste (for a thinner texture, also add whole milk). Next, add sandalwood powder and a pinch of turmeric powder. Apply the mixture all over the body, leave it on as a body wrap for 30 minutes. Then, use a little water to scrub it off and shower as usual.
For oily skin, skim or low-fat milk and fat-free yogurt works best. Whole wheat flour can be a substitute, if gram flour is not available.
